Aero the Acro-Bat © 1993 SUNSOFT [Sun Corp. of America].
Step right up to the acro-batiest show on earth!
The madman industrialist Edgar Ektor has siezed control of the World of Amusement. He and a deranged cast of fairground freaks threaten the circus. The only hope for survival is the high-flying, death-defying Aero the Acro-Bat!
Spine-tingling terror unfolds as Aero tackles Ektor's wicked henchmen. Bungee jump into a battle with evil! Skydive in mode 7 toward the danger below. Hang on for the ride of your life as you rise and plunge on a roaring roller coaster! Tiptoe across a terrifying tightrope! Then power drill and twist Aero right through every sinister circus enemy imaginable. And all the while, the show must go on!
Game ID: SNS-XB-USA
Released in October 1993 in USA. Two months after the Genesis version; Aero the "Acro-Bat [Model T-15056]"
The SNES version used the Aero title song as level 1-1, but the Genesis version used the Saber Dance song as level 1-1 instead (which it shares with level 2-2). The SNES version also featured a level intro song which the Genesis version lacks entirely. However, the Genesis version features some music that the SNES version lacks, such as the level 4-3 theme.
The Super Famicom version was presented at the Famicom Spaceworld' 93 in August 1993 in Japan but was never released in Japan.
